Cross stitch is back in a new way to the classic picture your mum has hanging on her wall!
Taken from Cath Kidston's Stitch book, this wasn't a very quick "make", it took me weeks but well worth the effort!
Made with tapestry wool rather than thread makes it pretty sturdy. I used a spotty cotton to line the purse and floral backing.. The tricky task of getting a zip in a small space always takes me a few attempts and every time I say I must practice zip inserting!!
